Go here to see for yourself.

Looks like you can pull 6460 LBS as long as you have a weight distributung hitch AND the combined weight of the Explorer, the galant, the trailer, plus any cargo and persons on board does not exceed 11,000 LBS.


If you are alone, It looks like you could put another explorer on a trailer and tow it around.

Thanks
